IFA 2012 isn’t just tablets, Ultrabooks, and hybrid slate-laptops. On our third day at the popular European tech showcase, we came across Angry Birds-themed portable speakers and a medical device that reads vital signs via an iPhone. We can’t lie though, traditional gadgetry was everywhere. Our list includes new Ultrabooks from Lenovo and a family of affordable Android slates from a device maker you’d never expect.
Those adorably self-destructive Angry Birds dominated the air, but soon they'll be taking over the airwaves, too. Everyone's favorite flying fowl will soon be sold as external speakers that cost between $24 and $34, can play audio for up to 8 hours, and are all charged in just 2 hours. To chirp out your tunes, just connect your device to the tethered 3.5mm headjack on each birds' back.
